Learn the basics of pipemaking in this intensive 3-day class!
Starting Friday evening from 4-8pm with a basic course in torch use, safety, and beginning to melt glass, the next two days will be an accelerated course in beginning glassblowing geared towards creating functional pipes. Saturday and Sunday are full-length, 7-hour classes from 10am-5pm. The instruction will include demos followed by hands-on student practice with teacher assistance. There will be time for students to practice on their own during Saturday and Sunday's classes. Materials, tools and torches will be provided.
Our Pipemaking 101 class is structured to teach students from the beginning steps of torch safety all the way to creating a finished piece. We do not require previous flameworking experience, although students who do have some experience may gain more from the class.
